The names Verbascum bombyciferum Boiss. and V. vacillans Murb. are lectotypified. Lectotypes are kept in the Conservatoire et Jardin botaniques de la Ville de Genève Herbarium (G) and at the Lund University Botanical Museum (LD).
Centaurea spectabilis (Fisch. & C. A. Mey.) Sch. Bip. was lectotypified based on Szovits 482 at LE, of which six duplicates exist. A second-step lectotypification is thus designated here. Photos of the species in its natural habitat and an image of the lectotype are provided.
Ixora L. is a pantropical genus of 500 or more woody species. A review of Neotropical Ixora found two species described in other genera that belong to this genus, clarified the identity of another name, and discovered some plants new to science. Faramea mattogrossensis Standl. is here reclassified as I. mattogrossensis (Standl.) C. M. Taylor, and the replacement name I. standleyana C. M. Taylor is published for Psychotria decora Standl. The identity and circumscription of I. rufa Müll. Arg. are clarified and this name is epitypified. Newly described here are I. andina C.M. Taylor, I. froelichiana C. M. Taylor, I. guillenii C. M. Taylor, I. moskovitsiana C. M. Taylor, I. rudasiana C. M. Taylor, I. rudgeoides C. M. Taylor, I. schunkeana C. M. Taylor, I. smithiana C. M. Taylor, and I. vasquezii C. M. Taylor. The types of I. spruceana Müll. Arg. and I. francavillanaMüll. Arg. are not separable taxonomically, and this first name is synonymized under the second.
The typification of the name Scrophularia deserti Delile (Scrophulariaceae) is discussed. A previous attempted type designation is considered ineffective. Original material preserved at MPU is designated as the lectotype of the name.
A new species of Rubiaceae, Ophiorrhiza gaoligongensis L. Wu, Hareesh & R. H. Tu, is described and illustrated from southwestern China. The species is similar to O. cantonensis Hance but can be distinguished by its acuminate to caudate leaf apices, persistent 2-lobed stipules with lobes 8–20 mm long, inflorescences remaining erect throughout maturation, and shorter corolla tubes. A detailed description, distribution and habitat data, and color photographs and illustrations are provided.
Se describen dos especies nuevas de Begonia L., sección Casparya (Klotzsch) Warb., endémicas de la Cordillera Oriental colombiana. Al interior de la sección Casparya, las nuevas especies se relacionan estrechamente con B. solaniflora Jara compartiendo las inflorescencias unisexuales y el fruto sin apéndice apical. Se presentan mapas de distribución, así como ilustraciones y fotos en vivo de las especies descritas.
During the preparation of the treatment of the genus Plantago L. for the Flora Argentina project, dozens of names were identified as needing typification to stabilize their nomenclature. As a result, lectotypes are designated for 40 names, second-step lectotypes for four names, and a neotype for P. grandiflora Meyen. Furthermore, erroneous applications in past literature of the term “holotype” are corrected to lectotypes for five names.
